A Drummer's Experience in an E levator
That Fell rhirteen Stories.
"No," said Ch) rlcs A. Seel, a Boston
business man, as 1 e sterted to climb up to
the fourth story, "I never ride in eleva
tors. I suppose I im foolish, but I had an
experience in Minneapolis once that makes
me afraid to enter one. It was in 1SS0, and
I was a fresh young man traveling for a
house in Providi nee. In a large aflice
building in that eity. which was being
built by a friend f mine, there were two
elevator shafts, ar d in them were placed
the finest elevator . that had Ix-on manu
factured up to that date. With the ele
vators was an ni cushion device which
was newly patent el anil which had never
been tried. One t ay I happened up into
the hwflflfng, and my friend asked me if I
wanted to take a f ist trip in one of the ele
vators. "I was game fo anything those days,
and I said that 1 w mldn't mind. Them'an
who invented the ir cushion was going to
give a practical de nonst ration of its value,
and Lad one of the elevator can hauled up
to the top of that hirteen story building.
He proposed to get in the ear and let it
drop, and he want d some one to go down
with 1dm. The ca ' had lieen dropped two
or three times wit 1 nobody in it, and the
cushions had worked beautifully. That
afternoon the final best was to be made.
The inventor, a couple of reporters and
myself were to go town with the car. I
had given my promise that I would take
the trip, and although: I would have given
all that I possessed to stay out of the car
after I found what was expec ted of me, I
screwed my courage up to the sticking
point rather than be laughed at, and when
the inventor said everything was ready I
"The door was lo ked a moment after I
entered, and when I saw that there was
no escape 1 forced up a sickly sort of a
grin and looked an and. I was so scared
that my legs shook under me, and t lie re
porters were in cxa tly the same physical
condition. The inventor puttered around
fixing everything iti shipshape and we sat
on the scat and trw ibled in unison.
"Finally everything was ready, and the
inventor gave the word. The rope that
held the car up w is cut, and the trip be
gan. It is utterly impossible to describe
the horrible sensati n that I u-lt when that
car shot downward My head swam and
black and red spots danced before my eyes.
The swiftness witl which it Ml was" in
credible. It actually fell so fast that our
bodies could not 1 eep up with it. and we
rose from the floor : if going in the oppo
site direction. was faint and sick anil
oppressed with the most abject fear and
horror. The two reporters were in the
same shape, and the three of us were con
fident that we waul 1 be dashed to pieces
at the bottom of th i shaft. The inventor
was Calm, though v ry pale.
"The trip took but a few seconds and
every fix, t that we fell the car increased
its momentum, it seemed that we fell for
a century and I prayed that the bottom
would si xiii he reached so that we might
be relieved of our agony. As I said, I was
perfectly confident that I would never
leave the ear alive, and Was almost willing
to die if the fearful falling motion would
only cease. I was just about to faint when
the speed of the eai slackened gently, and
finally it stopped at the bottom of the
shaft so slowly and gently that the water
in a glass that sat on the Boor of the cat
was not disturbed oi rippled.
"We got out hurriedly and the cushion
was pronounced a sucoeas. Went to bed
and staid there for a week before I recov
ered my normal co tdHion, and now when
I get in an elevator that fi l ling of dread
coi. ics over me and 1 can't help it. There
fore I always walk." Buffalo Express.
